Full Product Description

Your passport to learning how short-term missions can best serve Christ’s kingdom

Short-term mission trips are a great way to impact the kingdom. Yet they can lack effectiveness because of mistakes or naiveté on the part of participants. In this insightful book, David A. Livermore calls us to serve with our eyes open to global and cultural realities so we can become more effective cross-cultural ministers. Winner of an Outreach Resource of the Year Award in global outreach from Outreach magazine, Serving with Eyes Wide Open is a must-have book for anyone doing a short-term mission or service project, whether domestic or overseas.

Now updated throughout to reflect the changing mission field.

Serving with Eyes Wide Open by David A. Livermore was published by Baker in March 2013 and is our 50001st best seller. The ISBN for Serving with Eyes Wide Open is 9780801015199.
